Chocolate Pizza Pastries

Love Life and Lollipops- The Chocolate Pastry Ingredients

On Saturday night, we decided to stay in, cook, and watch a movie.  It was divine! We ate some pasta with cabbage and marinara from the farmer's market and garlic bread from the Bread Alone stand at the market as well.  It was simple and delicious.  Then we got Avi to bed and got It's Complicated On Demand.

The movie was hysterical and totally hit the spot.  It was light and fun and exactly what we were looking for.  The only problem: in the movie Meryl Streep's character makes these amazing looking chocolate croissant from scratch and our vegan mouths were watering.

These desserts I concocted are certainly not croissant and don't even really resemble them, but they were delicious with gooey dark chocolate on the inside and crunchy sweet pizza crispiness on the outside.

Here's how I did it:

I ordered a whole wheat pizza dough from our favorite local pizza joint.  Then I preheated the oven to 350 degrees. I floured a board and rolled it out to what was as close as I could get to a rectangle.  I cut it into rectangles and brushed each one with melted Earth Balance Organic Buttery Spread and sprinkled organic turbinado sugar on each rectangle.  Then I chopped the chocolate (vegan dark of course) into strips.  I placed a strip and the wide end of each rectangle and rolled them up trying to get the tip to stick then placed them on a greased baking sheet.  I brushed each one with some more melted Earth Balance and sprinkled with a bit more sugar.  I popped them into the oven and let them puff up and brown a bit.  Then voila: dessert!

These chocolate pastries are vegan, not too sweet, and totally delicious.
